Mary Louise Gordon Shurn Bohannon was born April 21,1935.  She was the first-born child of John C. and Mary Gordon. She spent her formative years in Meridian, MS and attended St. Joseph Elementary and High School. Mary relocated to Chicago where she married and had four beautiful children.

Mary later returned to her hometown of Meridian with her family and began her career at Peavey Electronics. Mary worked at Peavey Electronics for over 28 years where she dedicated her time to help build the best Sound Reinforcement Equipment in the World. She took great pride in the growth and development of her employees for their future success.

Mary loved her church, St. Joseph Catholic Church where she remained a faithful member. She served as President of Servants of Mary and a member of the Church Council.

After her retirement, Mary married her high school sweetheart, Charles Bohannon and moved to California. While in California, Charles and Mary were active members of St. Andrews Catholic Church in Pasadena. They remained in California for 8 years before returning home to reside in Meridian.
